directions

  • Add oil to medium size pot, fry onion until soft.
  • Add chopped tomato, carrot, tomato paste and garlic and stir until a bit soft, about 8 minutes or so on low heat.
  • Add dry spices to bring out their flavors and aroma.
  • Add rice and lentils, cover with water just a bit over the rice, approximately 2-1/2 cups or so, bring to boil, cover and simmer for approximately 40 minutes checking periodically to see if tender.
  • NOTE: The lentils may seem a bit tough even after cooking, but leave covered for about 15 minutes and before serving they will be fine.
  • Great next to chicken or a great vegetarian meal all by itself!

    This is delicious masha Allah. I used white Basmati rice, green lentils in place of brown as that is what I had on hand, canned plum tomatoes, I peeled the carrot before chopping it up, recipe#442889, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, plus the rest. I served it as a vegetarian meal with homemade raita.
